2 College Freshman

Local Area: Its a dead town surrounded by mountains and lakes.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Girls are more open than boys. Also some students are races and they would date people from their race only.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The environment is studious, thus unusual events does not happen at all.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: In a college in United States of America, if there is no football team, its boring. We have rugby team but not football team.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Its nothing great, as always drama is going on. However,since there are very less girls on campus, I would recommend to join sorority.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are rarely any party on campus. Off campus parties are fun but its not like other part colleges

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The cost is not reasonable. Also little options for vegans. There is one Indian restaurant but it is too much expensive for students. Even the foods are not so Indian. Close to campus you will find Subway, Taco Bell and some other fast food stores. However there are some really good Mexican restaurant. I would recommend Gracia's

4 College Freshman

Administration: The safety officers are always roaming around campus. There noting strange things going on. Its a peaceful and quite area. Also perfect environment to study.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got the financial aid that I could get in my limit. However I was expecting more.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have little choice. I am literally paying for cereal because that is the food that I like eating there. There are almost no options for vegans and gluten free people. Vegetables are frozen that you can even see the ice. Sandwiches are hard as rock. They serve the poor quality of apples.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is not a good choice at all. its better to live off campus in order to live in " Home sweet Home". The Earhart's dinning hall is the worst with no fresh food. Also the Wow cafe is full with fast foods. However the cost is extremely high.Our all tuition cost goes to Daytona. Thus, the Prescott campus buildings are becoming older than students. Dorms are way too expensive than they should be. We have less students, so it looks empty and quite all the time.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, an institution founded exactly 22 years after the Wright Brothers' historic 1903 lift-off at Kitty Hawk, N.C., is where students and academics take flight. With a focus on aviation, aerospace, and engineering, Embry-Riddle offers more than 40 degree programs, in addition to master's and doctoral paths. The academics are what most students rave about, as the courses are challenging and rewarding, although engineering majors are known for especially getting the brunt of the workload. But even though professors pack their syllabi with a lot of assignments and projects, they truly care about their students, and students are thankful for this attention, especially with how high the tuition is (you get what you pay for!). The instructors are so attentive because it’s a small school, but sometimes this smallness can be a drawback, especially when it comes to the athletic programs. Not many students participate in varsity athletics, and there is scarce school spirit to support these teams, so if you're hoping to see flying banners in addition to planes, you're more likely to see the latter. Good news for the ladies' spirits, though: Guys are plentiful on campus, making up approximately 80 percent of the population.

Located in beautiful Prescott, Ariz., Embry-Riddle experiences sunny weather nearly year-round, which may be a reason why the surrounding area is known as a retirement community with little nightlife. Many students travel to Phoenix for more exciting attractions, with the state capital being about an hour and a half from campus. But while the Prescott area consists of an older community, that means that the crime rate is relatively low, which makes students feel safe in their surroundings. Plus, everything on campus is mostly within walking distance, so there's no need to have a car. If you do have a car, though, parking is readily available. If you need to get off campus and don't have a vehicle, the best advice would be to make a friend with one. To get to the airport, the University offers free shuttles for students, and by the end of your time at Embry-Riddle, you'll probably be able to tell your pilot how to fly the plane.
